Large pothole damages at least seven vehicles on I-20

Crews closed down a part of I-20 on Tuesday to get a pothole filled and fixed.

At least seven vehicles were damaged in the morning after hitting the pothole, which was in the eastbound lanes of the interstate near Bonnie View Road.


It was fixed by Tuesday night.

A similar pothole opened up shut down parts of Interstate 35 in Denton last week.

Transportation leaders say that the pothole problem will get worse before it gets better, and say that the area's ever-changing weather is to blame.
